It would do well with the right planning. RE: FPN, I have had that gig since June 2002, every first friday of every month and a couple scattered throughout the month there... The Band is The Squirrelheads (www.thesquirrelheads.com), kinda New Orleansy fun-time funk... your basic cover band for the masses... I have put the J Bass Plus in the living room for a little while and I have been playing a Warrior 5 string bolt on now... its the one on the 'splash-page' of my 'meager' website. Hey if y'all ain't doing anything tomorrow (8/10, 2-4pm) and want to catch a funk-acid-jazz band play a benefit for the opening of an open-leash-dog park... I'll be playing with The Subject for the Piedmont Park Conservancy, it is located in the pocket of P'mont Park that is on the other side of the Park drive bridge that goes over to the park offices (you'll hear it, we're outdoors)... Bring your dog, Dogwood ale is a buck I think...PM for details if interested. Back to thread content. Stacio, since Robbie Geisler left... GC is back to being just GC!!! Very disappointing... It seems that when I want to get my gear/store/conversation fix on... I either hop on here (TB) or pay a visit to my old stomping grounds... The Northeast (Boston, NYC, Brooklyn)... Since I'm not made of $, that really can't happen much, plus I could use a satisfying day gig... (i.e., getting out of the financial industry) and do something I love. I think that there are others that share the same sentiment on this thread and in Atlanta. Soy, Stacio... et al., Could y'all find and resurect that thread you were talking about and we could get this ball rolling.
